Hello, Tuesday! It's really a "monday" for me, we took an extra day off this past weekend, so I'm easing into the week and trying to hang onto the stillness and peace we found at Kerr Lake.
I think it's safe to say that this is our favorite place to camp with the kids so far. The water was gorgeous and safe to swim in, boasting campsites that overlook amazing views--absolute perfection!
The boys swam and explored to their heart's content. The fun available right at our campsite meant I was able to play with paints while Mr. Doozie snoozed in a hammock or tossed kids around in the water. I truly could have stayed for a week!
Between geocaching (they found their 44th cache!), exploring the visitor center, and home cooked meals at the ready, we were just about to declare the perfect camping getaway! But life is never perfect, in fact it can be very messy and reality hit when Jack took a bite out of the campground toilet seat....(insert the heebie-jeebies here)
Yep....I had taken him potty up at the bathhouse and as he went to flush the toilet he slipped. His bum hit the floor and his head ping-ponged off the side of the toilet and the stall wall. It happened so fast :( The next thing I know blood was spewing everywhere and my baby was screaming like he bit his tongue off! Why oh why must mouth wounds bleed so much? Thankfully another woman was in the bathroom and rushed to her car to get a first aid kit. I could have hugged her and wish I could thank again her for staying by this frantic momma, handing me gauze and telling Jack how brave he was. I told Jack, I think God sent us a camping angel :)
Once the drama and trauma settled he walked out with two fat lips, inside damage to his bottom lip tissue and two top teeth pushed backwards. Sigh. We head to the dentist at 2pm today and I'm pretty sure those sweet baby teeth are dead. A reality check that yep, we are still The Doozie Family haha!
Pudding cups and Motrin...pudding cups and Motrin
So, we are home, unpacked and rolling into the week. Shaking off the bad and hanging onto the good. Every member of the household is still claiming the weekend a success! Hey, I'll take it!
